Grammar Overview for New Teachers?

Posted By: Kelly <tuesday509@gmail.com>

I'm teaching a group of volunteers the basics of teaching ELL (I've taught for 7 years), and I'm wondering how to approach English grammar in an overview format that goes over the main aspects they need to know without overwhelming them. I already plan on telling them that they should study specific grammar ahead of a lesson, but since most Americans are not really taught grammar, period, a lot the volunteers want an overview and feel really skittish about grammar. Does anyone have techniques for giving native speakers an overview of the main parts of English grammar without overwhelming them? It's an intensive course, so I don't have a lot of time with them.
